Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: TDIH - A Gem from '74

I'm 1/2 with you . I want to hear it all from 66-79, and am more selective after that date . But the reason to, "bother listening to 90's shows", (etc) is variety ,and to keep the earlier stuff fresh . When you listen to a , say, 72 Europe show one after another ( hats off to your epic endeavor !), the typical 1st set songs, though well played, can sound like the next one ( early "Sugarees' ). If you , break them up , with shows from other eras, it is easier to enjoy those songs .
And , of course , there are those songs like "Foolish Heart",or "Days Between", that only occur later .
But If I was going to the proverbial desert island, and ad to pick one or the other , a 74 show would win in a flash... though I would still miss the others .
